What Is A Mole?

Moles are small black or brown spots on the skin that develop over time. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and some even have hair coming out of them. Because the hair in a mole may be carrying excess pigment, it may seem thicker or darker than the hair on the surrounding skin. Skin moles generally have a round or oval appearance.

Skin moles may not bother everyone, but many men and women seek mole removal treatments for cosmetic reasons. While removing moles at home may seem easy and convenient, it is not a safe and effective solution. 

Patients can only expect a safe laser mole removal treatment in a mole removal clinic. Also, at Glow and Go mole removal clinic Lahore, the best dermatologist successfully and safely removes unwanted skin moles painlessly.

What Causes Moles To Suddenly Appear?

One of the major causes of skin moles are melanocytes that are skin cells that group together instead of spreading evenly throughout your skin. Most skin moles are made of these cells, which make the pigment that gives your skin its natural color.

Other common causes of skin moles on the body are:

  • Hormonal changes
  • Certain skin types such as people with fairer complexion
  • Increasing age
  • You may have a family history of moles
  • Too much sun exposure
  • Genetic Mutations
  • Response of your immune system such as reaction to certain drugs or medications

Benefits Of Mole Removal?

  • A great way to boost your self confidence in appearance
  • Makeup application becomes easier for women
  • Shaving becomes easy especially for men after a skin mole removal treatment
  • Relief from unnecessary pain and skin irritation due to friction from clothes or jewelry
  • Removal of any possible cancerous mole before it turns out to be dangerous for your health

Mole Removal Treatments?

Whether you want to remove your mole for cosmetic reasons or because of your doctor’s advice due to melanoma concerns, you must never try to remove a mole on your own by using threads or mole removal creams. Always have an expert look into the matter.

Surgical Excision

A surgical excision method is for moles that have grown deep under your skin.used. In this procedure, a local anaesthetic is applied to numb the area to reduce any discomfort.

The skin mole and a tiny bit of skin surrounding it are taken away using a scalpel in this approach. These moles are usually removed with a few stitches, leaving a little scar that heals with time.

Shave Removal

Under local anesthesia, moles that extend from the skin can be shaved away. This is normally done with a scalpel and is a relatively simple and painless procedure. The mole may leave a pink mark on your skin after it is removed, but this will vanish with time.

Laser Mole Removal

If your mole is small, a specialised laser can be used to remove it. Targeted light energy is used in laser mole removal to break down pigment in the mole. Although this approach does not leave scars, it is not suitable for treating deep moles since the laser does not penetrate deeply enough.

Cryotherapy Treatment

This procedure is effective if you want to remove big moles from the body. The method involves liquid nitrogen to freeze the skin mole.

A small amount of super-cold liquid nitrogen will be swabbed or sprayed on the mole by your doctor. A tiny blister may form where the mole initially was, but it will heal on its own with time.

Types Of Moles

There are 3 main types of skin moles:

Congenital Moles

Congenital moles are present at the time of birth and affect roughly one out of every 100 infants. Congenital moles can be flat and occur in a variety of colours, but they usually do not turn cancerous

Acquired Moles

Skin moles that you get later in life are known as acquired moles. Such moles are found to be brown and have developed as a result of sun exposure. Acquired moles can also darken with age, but they don’t always develop into melanoma.

Atypical Moles

Unlike congenital and acquired moles, atypical moles are more likely to become cancerous.

Atypical moles are slightly bigger and have an irregular shape. While melanomas are often darker moles, atypical moles can be of different colors.
